Young Philby, Paperback / softback Book


Englishman Harold Adrian Russell Philby, nicknamed Kim, slips onto the Russian freighter Domatova as it quietly sails out of the Beirut harbour.

A spy for the Soviet Union, he flees the Lebanese capital with just the clothes on his back and uncertainty over his fate in Moscow.

Will he be welcomed as a senior Soviet intelligence officer?

Will the Great Game hes so keen on playing have a third act? Or will the Heart of Darkness have a more sinister purpose?

Impossible to put down, Young Philby paints a vivid picture about one of recent historys most fascinating and subtle spies.
